  2. Dirk scored this whisky 90 points Super Administrator

    These 1976 vintages can be good, this one is no exception! If it had just s little bit less bitterness this would be 92 in my books. But I have to score it just a little bit lower.
    • Nose
      Blueberries, tropical fruits like mango, papaya. Then some pineapple? Cassis, sweet honey and melons.
    • Taste
      Sweet!! Honey, papaya, mango, pineapple, strawberries and blueberries. Great, great, great! Melons, cassis and a touch of cacao powder. This is very nice! Oranges and a lot of them.
    • Finish
      Bitter fruits, chocolate, some more bitterness in the finish and then a healthy dose of oak. A tad to much to make it a fruit bomb for my profile.

    A little too much drying-bitterness combo in the finish to score really big...

  4. wataya scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    On the nose; Propolis, beeswax, cassis syrup, elderflower, dark berry mixture very concentrated, lavender, cherry sweets, furniture polish, caramel candies and ripe yellow kiwis. Taste: Cherry jam, dried plums in sugar, tarte tatin with a hint of turmeric, physalis in currant syrup. Finish: Fairly long with cherry candies, dark chocolate, espresso and pleasant notes of wood. Elegant and very balanced. Almost my favorite profile. n93, t92, f92

    A very good expression of Tomatin '76, however there are better options. Back in 2011 I rated this 90pnt. Perhaps nowadays this rate would be higher...

    Still such a fruity profile! Sadly the Tomatins don't show it anymore.
